Got a bottle of Chartreuse? Chartreuse is an herbal liqueur that’s been made by French monks since the mid-1700’s! It’s made by aging alcohol with a secret blend of 130 plants, a secret recipe that makes for a flavor that’s like none other. What does Chartreuse taste like? It’s sweet, spicy, and smooth, with a distinctly herbal finish.

If you got a bottle for one drink and aren’t sure how else to use it: never fear. Here are four must-try Chartreuse cocktails! There are classic cocktails like the Last Word, arguably the most famous of all green Chartreuse cocktails, and modern classics like the Naked and Famous. (Yep, that’s right.) Whether you’ve got a bottle of yellow or green on hand, we’ve got options. Ready to get mixing?
